I have been a Telemetry/Med-Surg RN for a little over two years. Recently, I received a glowing yearly evaluation and was offered the opportunity to bid on an open SICU position (7p-7a). The hospital where I work is large, urban Level I Trauma ED, etc..I've been told that the SICU there has a lot of post-trauma patients, which has piqued my interest, as I would like to advance my career. So here are my questions:
*If you are a current SICU/former med-surg RN, how difficult was the transition?
*What is the best advice you would give to someone who is just entering critical care?
Any other info, suggestions would be helpful..thanks!
